Customer Question

I can't go to sleep. I've taken benedryl and dilaudiid. Can I take a sleeping pill of Ativan since it has been since 2:00 since I've taken the dilaudiid?

Well there is moderate drug interaction between Dilaudid and Ativan.

You can take them with a gap more than 6-9 hours.

If you have taken dilaudid at 2 am then you should take Ativan 6 hours.

However they can cause excessive drowsiness,dizziness,difficulty in concentration.

Hope this helps.
